Vivendi has ended interim management of Premium - Mediaset

Friday 21 October 2016 | 09:11 CET | News
Mediaset has announced that it has received a letter from French media giant Vivendi informing the Italian broadcaster that it's ending the interim management of the Mediaset Premium unit. Under the terms of the original deal, which Vivendi later backed out of, all decisions regarding Premium were supposed to have been approved by the French company, which Mediaset says has now communicated the end of the interim period. In its statement, Mediaset adds that: "The main consequence of today's formal letter is the implicit recognition of the validity of the existing contract."
